The syntheses of tetradentate enediyne macrocycles with 24 (tact1:1)-, 26 (tact1:2)-, and 28 (tact2:2)-membered rings are described, along with their thermal reactivities and those of the corresponding Cu(II) (Cu(tact1:1), Cu(tact1:2)) and Zn(II) (Zn(tact1:1), Zn(tact1:2)) complexes. These enediyne macrocyclic ligands are not benzannulated and thus exhibit… CONTINUE READING
